In Today's Catholic World News Blog

Note: A new section has been added to TCW's site on the very important place Our Lady of Boulogne (also known as: Our Lady Star of the Sea and Our Lady of the Grand Return) has had in the History of the Catholic Church, and the Eldest Daughter of the Church [France]. With this new addition TCW wants and hopes to impress on its readers the imperative need TODAY, of invoking the miraculous intercession of Notre Dame de Boulogne, to end this, the worst persecution ever, of the True Papacy - which is now underground.

(Rome, 1939 - Pope Pius XII shown crowned at St. Peter's Basilica.) At the coronation ceremonies the Papal Tiara is placed on the head of the Pope with these words, "Receive the tiara adorned with three crowns and know that thou art Father of princes and kings, Ruler of the world, Vicar of our Saviour Jesus Christ." Note: Later in his pontificacy, Pius XII would exclaim, "We believe that the present hour is a dread phase of the events foretold by Christ. It seems that darkness is about to fall on the world. Humanity is in the grip of a supreme crisis."

"Mary immaculate, most brilliant star of purity, I rejoice

with thee, because thy immaculate conception has bestowed upon the angels in paradise the greatest joy.

I thank and bless the ever-blessed Trinity, who enriched 

thee with this high privilege. O let me, too, one day enter into this heavenly joy, in the company of angels, that I may praise and bless thee, world without end."
